Yeah, I tapped on both carbs with a screwdriver quite a bit, hoping that the float would release. Drained the carbs and then let them refill more than once, but no luck.

Thanks Jim, as always.

That is what I suspected. Just didn't want to pull the carbs... No big deal really.

I wonder why they did not include the year 1991? Were the Ninja 250 forks different that year?

It appears to me that the list is only for bike model years before about about 2004. But, it still...

Jim, I noticed this 36mm entry. Isn't this correct? Just should include up through 2007.

Thank you Jim.

I think that it is also pretty dated. I didn't see Ninja forks for newer versions at all.

Anyone that has knowledge of wrong information, please post it.

Well, it's a "pay me now or pay me later" proposition.

Yes, you can put in a tube to fix hard to find leaks, but then you can't just put in a plug to fix a flat when stuck on the side of the road....

You can put tubes in tubeless tires. But, few do that any more. People used to put tubes in tubeless tires because many tubeless rims used to leak a lot. Not really an issue any more.

It's hard to admit when we just make a mistake.

Instead we blame it on tires, cold, wet, traffic, other riders or anything else that will make us forget that we are the cause of our suffering.
